Best Practices For Crowdfunding Science Research

Published by Salvador Briggman. Find him on Twitter.

Recently, I was on a science panel where I and other panelists shared how you can harness the power of crowdfunding to help finance science research.

One of the panelists was Jai Ranganathan, the cofounder and Executive Director of SciFund Challenge, a nonprofit that trains scientists as to how to use crowdfunding to support their research studies.

Jai is one of the authors of the study, “To Crowdfund Research, Scientists Must Build an Audience for Their Work.” In this paper, the team looked at the results of an experiment where 159 scientists tried crowdfunding as a means to get funding for their research.

In this podcast interview, we discuss the implications of Jai’s study, along with some of the best practices for raising money online for science research. I hope that you enjoy our conversation.
